Coaching & social good consulting through Average Advocate is for individuals and organizations who want to make a difference in the world but aren’t sure where to start, need guidance to move forward, or want to overcome hurdles to achieve their vision.
Consulting is for non-profits, grassroots movements, organizations, businesses, & personal projects to help refine vision, develop leadership, create organization and make a plan to move forward in your mission to love others and change the world.
Would you benefit from a consultant or coach?
- Would an outside perspective encourage you as you become a world changer?
- Do you have a vision/passion but you don’t know how to transform it into something tangible?
- Are you a burnt-out do-gooder who needs someone to walk with you as your recover and reorder to focus on what you really want to?
- Does your business, church, community, or organization need someone to provide vision, direction and management to accomplish a specific advocacy project or objective?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, advocacy consulting or coaching is for you.
What is the difference between coaching and consulting?
Most individuals or organizations don’t always have the time and expertise to work on their world-changing efforts, let alone take the time to become a better advocates by focusing on their own personal development. Both Consulting and Coaching provides feedback, re-organization, processes, vision, and encouragement to help expand influence your brand of influence on the world, while not sacrificing the important for what feels urgent.
Consultations are focused on projects and organizations, rather than your personal growth and vision. I help network, plan, and coordinate on your project or organization’s behalf. Getting feedback on the world changing ideas might be just what your project or organization needs to move forward.
On an organizational level, this looks like internal development of structure, processes, vision, goals, and values to make sure you are walking the path you want to walk–something that can easily be forgotten during rapid growth, or, alternatively, starting small and moving into a new season.
In the same way, when it comes to consulting for a vision/project, my goals are also to refine that vision, give feedback on what might work or not work, and outline a plan for moving forward–covering everything from management to social media.
Coaching is more focused on the growth and vision of an individual.
I employ life-coaching methods to helps clients get to a place where they feel like they know what their best world-changing role is, and how to overcome whatever is hindering them from being fully alive. I provide accountability in conjunction with a life-mapping framework. I will use structure to guide us and meet our objectives, concentrating on the areas my clients need the most accountability and encouragement in. I also utilize co-active life-coaching strategies to help individuals uncover their best path forward, rather coming with the assumption I always know what is best for them. My goal is to provide feedback in a safe environment, balancing invitation and challenge.
My expertise has developed through fifteen years of organizational leadership, mentoring, lay-counseling experience, combined with applied coaching educational resources.

As a consultant or coach I jump in with different strengths and experience to empowering you as you change the world.
Am I the right coach or consultant for you?
After growing-up seeped in community efforts, public ministry, and non-profit work, then spending the majority of my adult life working as an advocate–I have reached a place where my experience and knowledge is now helpful to others.
I have a degree in the social sciences with a concentration on cultural anthropology, which I’ve continued to build-on over the last five years through continual research on global issues and following the experts and NGOs working on these issues.
But my life experience rather than head knowledge is likely even more valuable to you. Not only have I been a continual participant and have been mentored in the workings of outreach through my whole childhood, but as an adult I’ve lived this life. First as a missionary, then as church staff, and following that, the coordinator for a community organization. I also formed a non-profit and founded an annual nationwide advocacy project.
Through all of this, I’ve been asked to advise others on their own projects, and learned how to coach through assisting others.
Not to be forgotten, my own transformation–through mistakes and discovering who I am–as well as my strengths as a natural entrepreneur, innovator, visionary and connector have shaped me into a unique consultant and coach to walk alongside others.

Because of the nitche I am in, this question comes up often and must be addressed:
Why do you charge when you are so passionate about helping people do good things for the world?
I balk at putting a price tag on something invaluable that I would prefer to give you for free. Here is why there is a fee for me to help you do something that changes the world:
- all my time goes to help people change the world–this is the source of income
- This is what funds Average Advocate and its projects
- I do still try to give you as much as possible for free, even when I could charge
- There is a lot competing for my time and charging a fee helps me be able to assure you I am able to make time for you while maintaining my life priorities
- When I do coaching or consulting for free, usually it isn’t valued seriously and it wastes my clients time
I can guarantee that if you move forward in this, that you can expect to be transformed.
